8 Seek support
With 1 in 6 people with pre-diabetes, you are not alone. However, it can feel overwhelming and challenging to change your lifestyle. Get support from your family, friends, coworkers and others who might be going through similar challenges. Do any of these people need to take the same actions you do? Perhaps you can partner up for success. Is there a group of people striving to live a healthier lifestyle at your work? Whether you look online or join your state’s prevention program (below), there are plenty of places you can go to if you’re at high risk of diabetes.
